I sat down and waited for all the men to make their way from table to table.
The organizer said the 5-7 minutes we’d have with each person would go by quickly, and she was right.
I feel like there’s a very relatable gray area between “I want to meet someone” and “I don’t want to deal with all this extra nonsense.”Sadé: I consider myself perpetually single.
My last official relationship ended a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2013 (I just pulled up some old emails to confirm the date, and I’m definitely saving them for my memoir) and I’ve dated here and there in the years since without falling in love or meeting anyone who left a significant impact on my life.
My results were also mixed: One of the women whom I wrote down – I thought we had a lovely conversation – left in the middle of the event, and I never heard from her as a match, so she clearly had a different experience both in our conversation and the event as a whole.
I hit it off with several women talking about pop culture and Chicago, but, like Sadé, the spark-count was relatively low.
Dating is complicated for any generation, but millennials must contend with the double-edged sword of technology.
According to a Singles in America study from Match.com, 22 percent of millennials are more likely to feel that tech has made finding love harder.
The event offered little in terms of dress code, though, so we had to figure that ourselves.I not-very-creatively asked a lot of the potential matches if they’d done speed dating before, where they worked, etc. I didn’t feel sparks with anyone and some of the prospects’ jobs were more interesting than they were — I really wanted to learn more about this funeral director’s work, but, alas, our time was up — but it felt nice and less superficial to chat with people I’d ordinarily left-swipe.I wrote down mini descriptions next to their names on my Date-Mate Scorecard to help me remember them: John*, works in sales, striped tie. After about two hours, I’d had mini dates with about a dozen men.There was the conservative preacher’s son I caught in a lie; the sensitive budding filmmaker who was kind and sweet, but ultimately not long-term relationship material; the social activist f---boy — the list goes on. I completely relate to the gray area Adam mentioned.I’ve tried the apps but, like Adam, have gotten mixed results. On one hand, I’d love the companionship or even a very consistent friend with benefits, but I’m also content in my singledom.
And I’m holy by my own.”Pre-event Sadé: I’ve always wanted to try speed dating, which seemed perfect for a Valentine’s Day story.
